The guitar arrived safely. I’ve only played with it for a bit, but my first impression is that it’s the most beautiful guitar I’ve ever played. Looks, tone, feel. Yeah, it sounds like golden sunshine, especially those high notes. In fact it sounds like a record! I think I found MY perfect guitar.
Gibson ES-175 1965
I first hesitated to buy it, because your description was so very lyrical that I did not trust it (it sounded too good). But indeed, it's all true: it's a fine & fabulous guitar. A joy to look at and to play.
